last night's first debate between last night's first debate between donald trump and hillary clinton covered a lot of ground from jobs to terrorism plus her e-mails, his tax returns. >> there were a lot of things covered. and in this close race, were any minds actually changed? abc's political director joins us right now. just back from hofstra university now in long island. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> so it's a relatively small area, the debate hall, about a thousand you guys are watching it right next door. what exchange got the most reaction? >> one of the moments the moderator, lester holt, had to turn to the aud yents to quiet them down and donald trump said he would release his tax returns if hillary clinton would released her 30,000 personal e-mails. his supporters in the crowd seemed to really like it. they got, you know, really loud, but this moment i think will come back to haunt him because you could see, and clinton, seemed to forget the reason that he's been talking all along
2:43 am
audit. he momentarily forgot that. >> lester holt saying so it's negotiateble? >> he said, no, but talk about the e-mails. so he did say it's against my attorney's advice, but i'll do it. a lot of back and forth over the e-mails. >> oh, there you go, he's turning around there to tell the audience to calm down a little bit. >> there were a few moments with the audience seemed to react, and not just at that one. what was it like being in the hall? did it can feel like that was kind of taboo or were we letting it slide? >> no, i mean, i think that every moderator knows that an audience is going to make noise, right? even though in the beginning, they say that they're not supposed to clap, you're not supposed to champ for the person you support. but the moderator knows. that was the moment that was the loudest, but it was just one of a few. >> what were the individual
2:44 am
going into the debate and watching it now, do you feel like they stepped it up? >> hillary clinton came to fight, and you saw that. she had to. she prepared for both donald trumps. restrained donald trump that we see more recently on the campaign trail, and then that unpredictable one we saw for almost a year. she wanted t make sure to bait that unpredictable trump out. and she got that on the issue of birther, treatment of women, and >> what audience were they both trying to appeal to? we have a sense of who secretary clinton appealed to, and trump, who was he trying to appeal to? >> well, i think trump and clinton, too, trying to appeal to undecided voters. but there are not that many of them. so both trump and clinton were trying to play directly into their base, make sure they're excited, make sure they're enthusiastic so they show up to vote on november 8.
2:45 am
that we know her voters are less enthusiastic than his. she needs that obama coalition to show up. >> you were saying it seemed like she was trying to sort of bait that unpredictable version of donald trump. there were times where it seemed like he may have baited her, as well, into a tit for tat audience. how did that play out last night? >> i thought he did well as he tried to portray himself as a new schois for the country. again that hillary clinton had been around for 30 years. i thought he did well in that he was successful, but that strategy went away by the end of the debate. >> yeah, in fact, he did kind of say in 30 years, what jobs have you created? and he hammered that. >> in the beginning, he kept going back to that on trade, economy, and jobs. you saw it in the second half of the debate when she gained steam. >> maybe overall, do you have feel like either one of them
2:46 am
>> it's an important question. i think they both have a ways to go. i think you really need that big moment for them to move the needle. what kind of moment? donald trump needs a big apology. we did not see that tonight. hillary clinton needs to appear presidential and make trump seem up acceptable to voters. she started that tonight, but there's still two more debates, though, and that's going be her goal. >> all right. our political director, we'll see you from st. louis. >> definitely. >> thank you. coming up in the next half hour, fact checking candidates counterclaims, and outright accusations. we'll sort out fact from fiction. but first, authorities are still trying to figure out with what happened in the mystery at sea. a young man rescued after eight days on the open water, but his mother is still missing. what we're learning now about the investigation. you're watching "world news now."

3:05 am
what's even nor more important are the reviews tomorrow. i'm david wright at hofstra university. >> clinton called trump's jobs plan a trumped up version of tri trickle down economics and he slammed her record on trade. >> yeah. the audience said it was supposed to be quiet and stay quiet, but they couldn't resist reacting to some of the candidates' more snapping zingers. abc's marcy gonzalez was in the spin room and she's still more. marcy, good morning. one of the more talked about moments, i wrote it down here, was when hillary clinton said trump supported the war in iraq. >> reporter: right. this was a pretty lengthy exchange. trump insisted that he'd always oppose the war in iraq, but moderator, lester holt, pressed him on that saying the record didn't show that. there was a radio show with stern who asked trump if he supported the war, and that's
3:06 am
so. so in the debate, trump said that was the first time he was asked about the iraq war saying he answered lightly, but insisted every interview after that, he adamantly opposed the war. kendis and diane. >> marci, another big issue here was race. a lot of discussion about the police community, the black xhoougz community, tensions between the two with recent shootings. how did the candidates do on that issue? >> reporter: yeah. the issue definitely came up including some of the recent shootings that they didn't get into those specifics, but clinton said race is a significant challenge in this country. she said that we have to restore trust between the community and police, and then trump in his rebuttal said he was using words that he claims clinton won't use, and those words are law and order. of course, that has been a major theme of the trump campaign. >> that, indeed. she used it in one point in
3:07 am
marci gonzalez there at hofstra university in long island or on long island for us. marci, thank you. >> marci, thank you. you know, it's interesting to watch these debates and how they progress because we talk so much about their preparation going into this. well, now they've both had this experience. >> yep. >> oftentimes we see candidates change their demeanor and their strategies as the debate process goes on. it will be interesting to see how that works. >> illustrate will be interesting to see trump takes a few days off the campaign trail ahead of the october 9 st. louis debate to prepare more. that's one of the things that a lot of folks thought that he needed to prepare a little bit more going into last night's debate. of course, hillary clinton was, i think she might have had one day on the campaign trail in the last week. trump took off friday to do some debate prep, so we'll see if that strategy at least changes. >> uh-huh. there were some, though, saying maybe that was just in order to temp her expectations. they like to say he's not
3:08 am

3:35 am
show interview in which stern asked him if he supported the iraq war and trump said, yeah, i guess so. so trump said in the debate that that was just the first time he had been asked about it, that he answered lightly and he insisted that in every interview after that, he adamantly opposed the war. >> marci, were you guys surprised to see trump actually come into the spin room to spin for himself? >> reporter: no. there were some rumblings he might be coming through here so everyone was kind of ready, staking out their positions. so when he came through, most people weren't too surprised. >> all right. that's marci gonzalez live for us at hofstra university. marci, thank you very much. >> all right. so after the debate, trump broke tradition, as we mentioned, and appeared in the spin room. >> and he told abc's tom llamas that he had a great night. he then congratulated himself on not bringing up bill clinton's affairs, even though he had hinted about them. >> i thought it was great. i mean, i got everything i

3:46 am
likely voters to find out what everyone actually thought about the debate last night, whether it did move the needle, though, we heard a lot of analysts come out this morning saying hillary clinton won. we got a tweet from the trump campaign whohey think -- >> who do they think? >> they have a variety of on line polls, publications finding in on online post-debate polls they go for trump. >> trump found throughout the entire process and all the debates he's taken part in, the him, even when the analysts are, like, well, he didn't do that well. what we know for sure, it was the most tweeted debate ever. 79% of the conversation on facebook last night was about the debates 62% on twitter. the most debated moment? >> trump addressed his temperament, right? >> his temperament. that's what people tweeted most about last night. well, coming up, president obama, he's been renamed black eagle.
